While playing a game of Side Effects May Include… the mother and son were discussing who Margaret's favourite child was when she admitted it wasn't James!

James, who has two sisters, asked his mum: "There's not one child you love just slightly more than the other two?", to which Margaret insisted: "If there was, I wouldn't say anything on TV," before adding: "It's your sister – both sisters I suppose."

Looking shocked, James asked further: "In all seriousness, because this won't be on TV, who is your favourite?" However, in true mum style, Margaret then insisted: "I don't have favourites James!"

James has a close bond with his parents

But it wasn't just the favourite-child chat that left James shocked. During an earlier game, the mum-of-three left James in stitches when she admitted that for Mother's Day, she likes "more than just flowers, James," before adding that a side effect of living on a different continent to your son on Mother's Day was "getting these [expletive] pair of slippers!"

The TV host then told his mum: "I think that's the first time I've ever heard you swear, Mum", to which Margaret replied: "Oh I can bloody swear when I want to."

James currently lives in LA with his wife Julia and their three children, Max, Carey and Charlotte. His mum, Margaret, resides in High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, where James spent most of his childhood and early teens before landing success as an actor and TV presenter.
